A gourmet foodie high tea in an intimate setting. High Tea Society had the pleasure of having high tea at Rochelle Adonis in Perth.
High Tea Society had the pleasure of having high tea at Rochelle Adonis in Perth. The dining room has an industrial yet girly feel. The room is filled with light and features a long marble top table with framed photos of specialty cakes on the walls. Every high tea is different as the menu made up of seasonal produce (unique) each time, but will always feature two courses, a sweet followed by savoury. This is a sweet surprise on Brisbane Street, at the far end of Northbridge, near Hyde Park.
“We want our customers to take time out of their daily ritual to enjoy the beauty and simplicity of a high tea at Rochelle Adonis. We too attempt to escape from the ‘norm’ as we are bound by our production requirements in all other aspects of the business. The high tea is a chance for our kitchen to create something that they would love to see and eat. It’s a chance for all involved to break away from all that we know and move towards what we dream about.” Rochelle Adonis

High Tea at Rochelle Adonis offers wonderfully prepared food with great attention to detail, this is a gourmet and intimate high tea experience, but food portions are smaller than other high tea venues. The venue has a capacity of 20, so is ideal for a group events. As the seats are high stools it may not be suitable for people with mobility issues.
